Nearly reduced me to tears, 9 Aug 2006
I bought this book the day after I landed on St. Kilda and combined with the visit it really paints a picture of the St. Kildan's remote island life. It mixes the idyllic with the hardships and teaches us a thing or two about the impact of money and greed. Unfortunately my great grandfather doesn't get a mention!
A fascinating read, my only criticism of which would be that there's only so much one can say about the birds.
